The tragic and shocking death of Michael Jackson on June 25, 2009 set off a flurry of activity on the Internet as it came so suddenly and seemed so unbelievable. Michael was best known for his Thriller album, his white sparkly glove and unbelievable dance steps and talent. This Halloween will provide all of his fans with the opportunity to dress up like the “King of Pop” and pay tribute to their beloved pop icon with a Michael Jackson costume. Surprisingly, the number of different Michael Jackson costumes and accessories does not match up with all of his different looks, however there are some great costumes available including the Michael Jackson Bad Costume, Thriller and Billie Jean. Some online costume shop appear to have already sold out and inventory could be in short supply espcecially in light of the expected tremendous demand for anything to do with Michael Jackson. Halloween is a multi billion dollar industry and it will be interesting to see what share of that market Michael Jackson costumes acount for this year.

Any bottom in the US economy may start to be believable in 2013. At that point, we may start to be through the mortgage problem if the US govt can get out of the way and let the market sort itself out in the name of FREE ENTERPRISE.
